Staycation Links: Fun & Thrifty Things To Do Everywhere!

Yesterday I shared with you some of our family’s favorite things to do and places to visit in the Willamette Valley that don’t cost an arm and a leg as part of the “Year Of The Staycation” project hosted by The Happy Housewife and Springs Bargains.

The purpose is to provide you with lots of inexpensive ideas for activities near where you live to help ease the crunch of the economy. So today you will find links to all of the blogs that shared their favorite activities and places to visit as part of the Staycation project- and almost every state is represented, so no matter where you live there should be a post about some place near you to explore this summer!

I know I have already found some places that I’m bookmarking for the future (Yosemite is sorta near, isn’t it?) for both “staycations” and vacations. There’s some awesome insider information here, folks!
